Johnston Canyon Icewalk

274 reviews
Trying to trek along the frozen Johnston Canyon without a guide could be tough in frigid temperatures with icy walkways. Opt to take this guided tour from Banff, and see wildlife, waterfalls, and, of course, a lot of ice. Plus, this tour provides round-trip transport, ice cleats, a hiking pole, a snack, and a hot cup of cocoa to make things super easy on you.

We visited Cascade Ponds on a weekday and it was calm and very few people there. The ponds are clear and blue and the spot offers amazing views of the mountains. A very calm spot to bring a picnic and relax.

I don’t how many times I’ve driven by Cascade Ponds? Not once have I ever stopped to check it out. This time we wanted to end our trip to the mountains with a short family friendly bike ride. We were going to ride from cascade pond to Johnson lake. We couldn’t find the trail head but made the most of our time at Cascade Pond. I want to stop there every time we visit Banff!

the ponds at the base of Cascade Mountain, just off the TransCanada Highway and on the way to Lake Minnewanka and Two Jack Lake are stunning at any time but are particularly so when they are full of water like the last time we saw them. Great picnicking area all around, with BBQ pits, big open spaces for the kids to play and little walking trails and bridges for exploring. Lots of birds and deer all around. We biked there from Canmore on the Legacy Trail and then had lunch on one of the picnic tables there. Wonderful!!

We rode bikes from here to Bankhead. The trail was easy (flat) with gorgeous mountain views. When we got back to Cascade Ponds we had a wiener roast and made s'mores. It was a hot day and so nice to dip our feet in the pond.

Beautiful family area! A hidden gem! I wish I knew of this place when my kids were little. Take a picnic, bathing suits, etc and make a day of it. So close to Banff in case you forgot something. Lovely place to swim and relax!
